Sonakshi Sinha brought a new charm of being a fearless cop in Dahaad that has impressed viewers and critics alike. After being a part of the film industry for more than a decade, the actor has received proper credit in the Zoya Akhtar and Reema Kagti-created Prime Video series. Sonakshi plays the role of Anjali Bhaati, a cop who hunts down serial killer Anand, played by Vijay Varma, in the eight-episode series.

During an interaction with News18, Sonakshi was asked if a woman-led narrative is what she is looking for in her upcoming projects. To which the actor said that she has one film in theatres now and another one she is filming right now. In terms of acting, she is open to anything. OTT has created a new frontier for artists of all stripes, and it's fantastic. Even before the pandemic hit, Sonakshi had signed Dahaad. She expected a lengthy OTT series because of its length.

The actor was also asked if there was a sequel to Dahaad in the pipeline. She responded by saying that that's a question she has been asking Reema and Zoya. She would love to see a third, fourth, and even fifth season made. But the truth lies only in their hands. Sonakshi is dying to go back into character as Anjali Bhati. Even though her on-screen persona eventually adopts the name, Anjali Meghwal, she will always prefer being addressed as "Bhati Saab."


Dahaad has an ensemble cast including Gulshan Devaiah, Sohum Shah, Vijay Varma, Manyuu Doshi, Yogi Singha, Sanghmitra Hitaishi, Ratnabali Bhattacharjee, Varad Bhatnagar, Nirmal Chiraniyan, Vijay Kumar Dogra, Abhishek Bhalerao, and Waris Ahmed Zaidi.

The serial killer Cyanide Mohan, also known as Mohan Kumar, who is known for preying on single women, served as the series' inspiration.

After Dahaad, Sonakshi will be seen in yet another OTT series, Heeramandi, created by Sanjay Leela Bhansali for Netflix.
